  5. We can't be sure if an officer's interpretation of slang is accurate unless is corroborated by two or three other people who understand the slang and can translate it into standard English.

  7. This would be the same thing if the officer were questioning a person who did not speak English. A credible translator would have to be present to be sure that what was said was understood. It would also be necessary for the conversation to be taped to verify that the translation was accurate.
